3 reasons to have an ELD with no contract
Now that the ELD mandate has been in full effect for about 2 years, most truckers in the industry are expected to have an electronic logging device in their vehicle.
While some exemptions do exist for some, most trucking businesses had to learn new technology and adapt it relatively quickly. This may have even led to folks rushing to find a provider and being stuck with one that doesn’t meet their businesses’ needs.
In that rush to find a provider, many signed contracts that committed them to a provider they likely didn’t know much about, considering how novel ELDs still were.
In case your business is in the market for a new solution, we’d like to provide you with some insider knowledge: you don’t need a contract to be ELD compliant. There is a myriad of reasons why having an ELD without a contract is beneficial to your trucking business and we’re going to break them down for you.
Freedom of movement
Not every solution available on the market is going to meet your needs. This means you may have to explore and take your time to find the solution that works best for you and your trucking business.
However, this requires you and your business to have the freedom to do so, which cannot be done if you’re committed to a contract. With an ELD provider that offers month-to-month subscriptions, you’ll have the freedom to leave when you please.
Provider has to earn your business
While month-to-month subscriptions allow you and your business to easily change providers, it’s also a motivator for the provider, who has to earn your business in order to keep you around.
Whereas a provider who has your business under contract for 2 years can stagnate over time, a provider with no contract must continuously improve and provide customers with quality service in order to make sure they stick around.
Skip unnecessary cancellation fees
Cancellation fees are unavoidable when committing to an ELD contract. When you sign up with a solution that doesn’t require contracts, you can skip the hassle of paying costly cancellation fees to a provider you don’t even like.
